Planet Find Gets British Bookies Scared Of Aliens


newsinfo.inquirer.net

LONDON -- British bookmakers wasted no time slashing the odds on aliens being discovered after astronomers announced Wednesday that they had discovered an Earth-like planet.

William Hill cut the odds on proving the existence of extra-terrestrial life from 1,000-1 to 100-1.

"We felt we had to react to the news that an Earth-like planet which could support intelligent life had been discovered -- after all, we don't know for sure that intelligent extra-terrestrial life has not already been discovered, but is being hushed up," said spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Interesting discovery leads to some unusual reactions.



For William Hill to pay out on an aliens bet, the prime minister has to confirm officially the existence of intelligent extra-terrestrial life within a year of the bet being placed.

(Emphasis mine)

I find it interesting that the Media Director of a huge Company (They make in the Region of £300 million ($600 million) a year) should mention that last bit there....

Considering they slashed the odds to 100-1 (horses have worse odds at the Grand National and still win)

Is he a conspiracy nut? Does he know something? Or is he just playing on the hype?

Mail him him here and ask: gsharpe@williamhill.co.uk
